Going down hill...... The food at D'Amato's has been steadedly declining - the food is just average and that is not good for an Italian resturant in Royal Oak with Andiamos and Lepanto nearby. I had the cavatappi, which previously was great - but this last time - it was watery and too salty. The wait staff is great and the ambience is awesome, very romantic.
Decent. D'Amato's used to be one of my favorite resturants in Royal Oak. Service is STELLAR, atomsphere is nice and pleasant. However, I have noticed a steady decline in the quality of the food. I still frequent the establishment but my meals have become sub par. My mainstays are the cavatappi and the chicken marsala. Everytime I go expecting the same quality food, but the meals are either salty or sauce is too watery. I hope the food improves. I heard that one of the main chefs lfft, so I am not sure if that has anything to do with the decline in food quality. However, the service is great and friendly. Also, the hostess is hot.
stick with the appetizers. Great appetizers; one of few places to get carpaccio in Detroit--makes a great dinner by itself. The green beans with gorganzola salad is great. Unfortunately I'd avoid the pastas. Usually overcooked and too many flavors competing. Entrees are good, but it's disappointing to have another so called Italian restaurant in Detroit that can't cook pasta. Service is usually very good.
